The collection was created by an unidentified young woman and includes her diary with entries from January-July 1942 and seven letters from January-February 1944. The diary begins with a brief recap of 1941 and continues to document the author’s interest in securing a civil service position in Washington, D.C. during World War II, working in government positions (including doing indexing) and the Observer newspaper, listening to President Franklin Roosevelt on the radio, and other facets of her daily life on the home front during wartime through detailed entries. Also included is a photograph, which may or may not be the creator of the material.
